Ep. 74: WWE Hell In A Cell 2018 Review

September 16th, 2018
00:0000:00

We break down Sunday night's WWE Hell In A Cell PPV event immediately following its conclusion. Brock Lesnar made his return, which lead to an unfortunate finish in the Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman match.

We cover all of that and everything else. Overall, this was a very good PPV that saw Samoa Joe and AJ Styles have a really good match, the RAW tag team titles were defended in one of the best tag team matches on the WWE main roster in several months, and Alexa Bliss got her rematch with Ronda Rousey.

Plus, a memorable Randy Orton vs. Jeff Hardy Hell In A Cell match and much more.

August 30th, 2018
00:0000:00

What in the blue hell is going on with Braun Strowman?! After last week's puzzling heel turn by Becky Lynch, WWE followed it up this week with Strowman also turning heel. Things are getting out of hand at WWE and we are here to make sense of it all for you. If you enjoyed the discussion about Lynch's heel turn last week, this is one you aren't going to want to miss. 

Additionally, we talk more about Becky Lynch's direction, the problems with Hell In A Cell, and end the show discussing the biggest independent wrestling show of all time happening this weekend in Chicago - ALL IN!

August 24th, 2018
00:0000:00

The hot topic on the internet this week is WWE turning Becky Lynch heel against Charlotte Flair and the fan's revolting to that script. We break this one down from all angles, including from a historical lens as we look at WWE's past in booking heels against "omnipotent babyfaces." This is a great discussion with a lot of wrestling history thrown in for context that you won't want to miss.

Plus, we're talking The Shield's reunion from Monday Night RAW, the New Day winning the SmackDown tag titles, possible directions for Hell In A Cell, Daniel Bryan re-signing with WWE, and a whole lot more.
